dish towel

Originally uploaded by akl.
As Jake and I pulled up into my driveway last night we could see he was already up there with tri-pod and camera set. Completely decked out in full National Geographic Photo-Shoot Attire my Dad was prepared with long sleeves and pants along with a hat and dish towel under it.

No mosquito's were going to distract this photographer.

I ran inside to get my Mom just as she is stumbling out of her bedroom from taking a nap. She also had prepared for the night.

We all head up the ladder to the roof to watch the show. The show was great, my Dad taking pictures the whole time, my Mom and I ewing and awing, and Jake running back and forth between helping my Dad and sitting with us...

After climbing down from the roof and uploading all the pictures onto the iMac, we enjoyed a slide show of the fireworks now accompanied by the William Tell Overture. No mosquito's this time.

That is a really good picture of the fireworks. I like to slow the speed of my camera and take pictures like that also. Although, I don't dress up in adventure gear when I do it.

Thanks Shakabuku! My Dad is really starting to get comfortable with his camera and he experimented with slow shutter speeds all night. I like this shot as well.
